Radisys Corporation, the services acceleration company, today named the first customer to select Radisys’ FlowEngine Intelligent Traffic Distribution System.

As part of its SDN-enabled service delivery platform, Verizon chose the FlowEngine system to provide increased control over parts of its network. The Radisys TDE-500 platform with FlowEngine software provides the flexibility and programmability large carrier networks require in today’s cloud environment.

“With the improved flexibility and programmability, we can accelerate introduction of new services that have large and small traffic flows, including cloud-based applications, video optimization and IoT,” said Damascene Joachimpillai, director, Internet Services Architecture, Verizon Labs. “Radisys’ FlowEngine technology will help us deploy a cost-effective, intelligent front end traffic distributor that normalizes traffic at a single point in the network for high throughput and low latency.”

The FlowEngine Intelligent Traffic Distribution System helps service providers rapidly deliver new IP services in a scalable SDN-enabled network while reducing network complexity and capital costs. It is designed to operate in both data center and carrier environments that demand high network throughput, scalability and guaranteed performance. Available on the TDE-1000, TDE-500 and TDE-200 platforms, and as a virtualized network function, FlowEngine delivers high performance IP packet classification and flow-based intelligent load balancing for distributing up to 1.2 Tbps of aggregate data traffic across third-party compute server platforms hosting Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs). FlowEngine’s intelligent load balancing and support for open control interfaces, such as the IETF ForCES architecture and ONF OpenFlow, allow real-time policies to be introduced dynamically and programmatically into the network. Certified interoperable with a number of third-party SDN controllers, including Mojatatu Networks’ MojaNET, FlowEngine allows for independent scale and flexibility of network elements by decoupling the control plane from data plane forwarding.

“Our FlowEngine products have been built from the ground up to enable service agility at scale without compromising performance,” said Bryan Sadowski, vice president of FlowEngine Product Marketing, Radisys. “By embracing the SDN disaggregated network model and industry standard control interfaces as well as working with innovative companies like Mojatatu Networks, we help mobile and cable/MSO service providers drive intelligence to the subscriber level, allowing millions of flows to be accessed and enabled through the network in real-time. We worked closely with Verizon on this technology and are excited to be chosen for their programmable edge router network transformation project.”

“MojaNET is a highly available and programmable SDN solution that uniquely supports physical and virtual deployments and provides the framework for fine-grained network traffic management,” said Jamal Hadi Salim, CEO of Mojatatu Networks. “As a component of our full-featured cloud network stack, MojaNET integrates with FlowEngine to provide operators like Verizon with a flexible platform that helps them bring new services to market more rapidly and at lower cost.”
